It is with sadness the family of Bob announce his passing at Dunrovin Park Lodge on March 25, 2015 at 89 years.
Born in New Westminister, B.C., he lived in Milner, B.C. till he was 14 years old. He left home for the Cariboo on his bike (hitched a few rides). He stayed with family, attended 10 Mile Lake school, worked in sawmills with family, did farm work, drove truck, eventually owning his own truck, hauling lumber from small sawmills in the Quesnel area.
Bob married Patricia Green in Quesnel August 30, 1952
Bob also worked for the Forestry at Strathnaver, drove lumber truck from Wells-Barkerville, gravel and cement trucks in Quesnel.
Due to a health issue he retired to his ranch at Moose Heights and enjoyed many more years there with his family. He greatly enjoyed trips to Nova Scotia and Manitoba meeting extended family.
He liked to help friends and neighbours with his knowledge of many things, with lots of stories of life’s ups and downs, and years gone by.
Lovingly remembered by his wife Pat, married for 62 1/2 years. His five sons Tom, John (Denise), Charlie (Cori), Dan (Valerie), Joel (Amber); seven grandchildren Shallyn (Jordan), Crystal (Curran), Riley, Meghan, Ryan, Sarah and Tessa; five great grandchildren Ethan, Emily, Kashton, Kelton, Thalia and Brooklyn. Also extended family members Bonnie, Leslie, Alicia, Tammy, Tony (Carly); nieces; nephews; many other relatives and friends.
Bob was predeceased by his parents Ralph, Eileen and Alberta Mufford; his brother Delmar Mufford and sister Beverly Saiko.
The family wishes to extend our thanks to Dunrovin Park Lodge staff for care given to Bob during his stay at Maple House.
Our thanks also to Laura at Claytons for her thoughtfulness.
